I fully agree with what Michael said. You can't truly expect
applications developer to trail and error what needs to be done. It's an
LCL issue that the Lazarus project needs to fix. Delphi's VCL, fpGUI
Toolkit and MSEide+MSEgui doesn't require this. Proof that LCL is doing
something wrong or has a bad internal design that needs fixing.
